John Tamihere says leafy suburbs didn't show up for him

From Morning Report, 8:35 am on 21 October 2019

The defeated Auckland mayoral contender John Tamihere says he can pin his election failure on white elderly voters in the city's leafier suburbs not voting for him. At the final count he received 81,000 votes to the returning mayor Phil Goff's 180,000. Mr Tamihere has been reflecting on his campaign and spoke with Philippa Tolley.
